My latest confession is now for sale at Lady Leo Publishing. What would you do if you wanted to have a child, but the decision was in the hands of your employer?
When Lili Soo Chen became pregnant, she was forced to make the most important decision of her life. Though China implemented strict birth control laws during the 1980’s to curb its overpopulation for the greater good, they were not uniformly regulated and often became abusive. Because Lili Soo had become pregnant without the permission of her supervisor in the hotel where she worked, she was told to have an abortion. And if she didn’t, she’d become an enemy of the state subject to imprisonment and heavy fines. Will Lili Soo bow to the pressures of her culture, or will she - knowing that an abortion could make it difficult for her to conceive again – keep her baby and deal with the consequences?
